How often have you done a monochromatic card similar to my White on White Reindeer Holiday Cards? I always seem to shy away from them and yet I love the elegant look they produce. When Cut@Home sent me the Spellbinders Reindeer Magic M-Bossibilities Embossing folder I knew right away I wanted to do a White on White card. I think I surprised myself at how easily they came together and how I loved the end result.
I ran a mat the size of my card front through the Cuttlebug first with Spellbinders Reindeer Magic M-Bossibilites folder to get a nice crisp impression. Cutting the aperture was a cinch using Spellbinders Labels Thirty One, it’s a perfect fit with the embossing folder. I lined up the embossed mat with my card front, secured them both with Washi tape and ran them together through my die cut machine. By cutting them both together you are assured your opening on the mat and the card are perfectly lined up.
Decide if you want a sentiment, like the photo on the left. Use the left over piece which was cut out with your Spellbinders die and stamp your sentiment on it. I used some Snowflake brads or punched snowflakes on some of mine. The example I use in the video also used the Just Right Inner Thoughts Stamps. A few of them are just the right size for your little piece.
Close your card, place your stamped piece, with the pop dots or glue on the back through the opening onto the inside of your card, that way you know you’ll have it perfectly line up with the aperture!
If you’d like an embossed image on the inside, as shown below, emboss the image, I used the Heartfelt Creations Winter Season Stamp on mine. I like to emboss mine on a larger piece than what will fit on the inside and then trim to what looks best. Line your embossed image up so that you have what you’re wanting to show through the window aperture, I lined up the door and the wreath, and then adhered it down. I also added the Spellbinders Corner Flourish which I cut in white and added Crystal Ice, Ice Stickles, I love how they dress up the embossed image!
By adding a little Stickle Glitter to the Reindeers neck and some tiny crystal bling for the eyes you got an eye popping front. Finish it off with ribbons or flowers, white feathers and your card is done.What a fabulous card to share with family and friends this Holiday Season.
There are step by steps and more photos included in my video.
Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
